The Essential Baking Company is offering three limited-edition Take & Bake bread varieties just in time for the holidays. Beginning Oct. 1, the shelf-stable loaves will be available in Cinnamon Currant, Cranberry Walnut and Stuffing for a limited time at all stores carrying The Essential Baking Company’s artisan breads and baked goods.

For decades, The Essential Baking Company has continued to inspire bread lovers across the country with fresh new products. With a 90-day shelf life, FreshSEAL packaging and preservative-free ingredients, Take & Bake has become a staple in kitchens, offices, backpacks, tents and “essentially” anywhere that calls for artisan bread.

“The Essential Baking Company relies heavily on customer feedback when it comes to baking new products, and that’s exactly how seasonal Take & Bake came to life,” said Tom Campanile, chief executive officer and president of The Essential Baking Company. “Take & Bake is a fresh, modern and convenient twist on artisan bread. We launched these new flavors as an homage to fall and its vibrant flavors, and we knew Take & Bake would be the perfect canvas for busy holiday chefs and anyone who enjoys these harvest flavors as much as we do.”

Seasonal varieties of Take & Bake are par-baked using ingredients such as real spices, cranberries, currants and high-quality unbleached flour. All flavors are Non-GMO Project Verified and made with organic flour.
